HISTORY OF Process Safety Management (PSM)

OSHA developed the PSM standard in 1992 following a number of catastrophic incidents at refinery and chemical facilities.

history of process safety management psm1

HISTORY OF Process Safety Management (PSM)

The standard is intended to prevent or minimize the consequences of a catastrophic release of toxic, reactive, flammable or explosive highly hazardous chemicals.

national emphasis program nep

NATIONAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM (NEP)

The NEP establishes an inspection program to ensure compliance with the Process Safety Management Program.

national emphasis program nep1

NATIONAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM (NEP)

It is a one-year pilot program with programmed inspections targeting Regions I, VII, and X, and with unprogrammed inspections in all regions.

national emphasis program nep2

NATIONAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM (NEP)

We are in Region X and are subject to programmed and unprogrammed inspections. After one year, OSHA will evaluate the NEP and consider renewal and expansion of the program.

NATIONAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM (NEP)

Through NEPs, OSHA has identified industries or hazards deserving priority attention from its national, regional and area offices as well as states that choose to implement similar programs.

national emphasis program nep4

NATIONAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM (NEP)

Facilities that may be subject to programmed (i.e., planned) inspections will be identified through the coordinated development of a “master list”

national emphasis program nep5

NATIONAL EMPHASIS PROGRAM (NEP)

The list will target the following facilities:

OSHA PSM facilities that are covered by EPA’s Risk Management Program as RMP Program 3 sites;

THE TARGETED LIST CONT.

Explosive Manufacturers; and

Facilities that have been previously cited for PSM violations.

THE TARGETED LIST CONT.

Facilities identified in each master list will be divided into three catagories:

Facilities likely to have ammonia used for refrigeration as the only Highly Hazardous Chemical (HHC);

the targeted list cont2

THE TARGETED LIST CONT.

Facilities likely to have chlorine used for water treatment as the only HHC; and

Facilities likely to have both ammonia and chlorine, ammonia or chlorine used for other

THE TARGETED LIST CONT.

Cont. facilities that have received a comprehensive PSM inspection within the previous two years, will not be included in the national list.

They will target facilities having received a complaint or referral or that have had a catastrophic incident. Some facilites may be selected for inspection pursuant to the current Site-Specific Targeting Plan.

inspection procedures

INSPECTION PROCEDURES

Each inspection will consist of:

An opening conference.

A facility-led overview of the site’s PSM programs.

An initial walkaround.

inspection procedures1

INSPECTION PROCEDURES

A compliance evaluation of a selected PSM-covered unit within the facility.

An inspection of contractors working on or adjacent to the selected unit; and

inspection procedures2

INSPECTION PROCEDURES

Issuance of citations for any alleged PSM violations.

Approx. 15 questions will be drawn from the applicable dynamic list for each evaluation of a selected unit.

inspection procedures3

INSPECTION PROCEDURES

If an inspection reveals deficiencies outside of the dynamic list questions, the scope of the inspection may be expanded. There may be citations for hazardous conditions or violations regardless if the are addressed by the dynamic list.

conclusion

CONCLUSION

Be prepared there could be an inspection at your facility at any time, if you fall under the PSM/RMP program. Make sure all your ducks are in a row. Review every aspect of your program, discuss it with employees and be ready on a moments notice.

conclusion1

CONCLUSION

We have 5 facilities that fall under PSM because of ammonia, and because we have received a PSM violation, I think I am on someone’s list. I hope I am ready. Preparing this presentation has given me a list of things I need to do.
